Boy Claps 1,080 Times In 1 Minute

A Florida 9-year-old Seven Wade applauded his way into the Guinness Book of World Records by clapping his hands 1,080 times in one minute.

He became interested in the hand-clapping record after seeing the previous record holder, Eli Bishop, on the record-keeping organization’s YouTube channel.
Wade said he studied the former recordholder’s technique until he was able to best his record of 1,020 claps in one minute.
“My son started a practice regimen that saw him setting time aside for clapping several times a day,” said Wade’s father Chikako
